    "Arma 3 is a good realistic game on Steam, although it is not an outstanding one. The game provides a deep combat simulator which I found interesting. Its multiplayer-gaming function is also very impressive and completely unique. I used to play with my friends after work. However, it takes a long time to comprehend the game strategy."

    "My friend recommended Rocket League to me since I like racing games and FIFA, but it doesn't quite scratch the itch. It's very unrealistic. I can play a match in a sitting, then I want to get back to something more like reality."

    "Insurgency offers the most realistic game experience on Steam. I just wish there were other games as realistic as Insurgency about other topics. It would be neat if they took the realism of Insurgency and made a game about surgery. "

    "Project CARS is one of the most realistic games on Steam. When it comes to cars. As for other realism that's hard to say. The handling and the features and fine tuning you can do with every vehicle is breathtaking. The physics are amazing and sandbox that lets you do everything from the beginning is fantastic."

    "I've been looking for realistic games on Steam, and I was so happy to come across this one. This game, iRacing, uses Oculus Rift for a really immersive experience. When I put on the headset, I seriously feel like I am actually in the driver's seat on the race track. It's an absolutely amazing game and if you don't believe me, just take a look at the other reviews! I've been looking for more realistic games on Steam for as long as I can remember, and this one is definitely going on the top of my list when I'm looking for a good game to play in the future. I highly recommend you try it out. "
